    Understanding the Different Types of Web Hosting
    In this section, we are going to explain the different types of web hosting that are available and the differences between them.

    If you’re looking for the cheaper options then Shared Hosting is the plan that you want.

    1. Shared Web Hosting

    Shared hosting is like an apartment building where you have a bunch of different people living and sharing some of the same resources like electrical and water supply and maybe a laundromat or swimming pool. Think of the apartment building as the Internet Protocol (IP) address.

    The thinking behind this idea actually makes good sense; it’s the execution that sometimes lacks.

    In general, no single website comes close to needing the resources available of an entire server, especially if you’re running a simple informational website or a blog-based Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress. These are undemanding websites – they sip they server’s resources under normal conditions. Dozens or even hundreds could adequately be hosted by a single server.

    Like the communal swimming pool at our fictional apartment building, it all works fine until someone poops in the water and then no one can use it.

    As we’ve stated, Shared Hosting is where a single server hosts multiple sites. The numbers can range from a few hundred to several thousand depending on the available hard drive space, RAM, and processing speed. This hosting is on a machine that’s identical to a dedicated server, but its resources are used by a much greater number of clients. Each website user account's files and any applications are stored in separate partitions on the server, and each has its own file directory tree. Users don’t have access to either the root or to each other's files. All accounts on the shared server share computing resources of the web server.

    If you can sport necessary characteristics that make up a good web host as discuss above, then shared hosting is a good start for any body that want to start online

    2. Cloud Hosting

    Cloud Based Web Hosting refers to a fairly new hosting technology that lets hundreds of individual servers work together so that it looks like one giant server. The idea is that as the need grows, the hosting company can just add more commodity hardware to make an ever larger grid or cloud.

    The advantage of cloud hosting is that, if you get an unusually large amount of website traffic the web hosting plan can accommodate the surge of traffic - rather than shutting your website down.

    If you're website is growing and you're driving more traffic to your website, this is probably the first point you would upgrade too from a shared hosting plan.

    3. Virtual Private Server (VPS)

    Virtual Private Servers (VPSS) share one physical server but acts like multiple, separate servers.

    A VPS is a stepping stone between shared hosting and getting your own dedicated machine. Even though each VPS instance shares hardware resources, they are allocated a dedicated slice of the computing resources.

    4. Dedicated Web Server

    When you have a Dedicated Server, it means you are renting one physical server from a hosting company. You can have full control (called "root" permissions in Linux) if you want it.

    With a Dedicated Server, you don't have to worry about other websites on a shared server taking up your resources and slowing your website down.

    A Dedicated Server is generally the highest level of server you would need if your online business grows into a presence that is getting a lot of website traffic. While the costs of a dedicated server is significantly higher than shared hosting, your business will be at a point that can easily afford the necessary costs of having your own server.

    5. Wordpress Hosting

    WordPress Hosting is just hosting that has been optimized to better meet WordPress’ performance and security needs. It also typically includes one-click WordPress installs to make it easy to get started with WordPress. And some WordPress hosts will even automatically update your WordPress software as needed.

    Wordpress Hosting could be shared or maneged. While With shared WordPress hosting, your site will “share” a server with other websites. Your server will still be performance-optimized for WordPress, you just won’t have it all to yourself.

    In addition to everything offered by shared hosting, managed WordPress hosting typically offers: better speed, server-side cashing and better security

    6. Colocation Web Hosting

    When you Colocate, you rent rack space from a data center. You bring in your own server hardware and they provide power, cooling, physical security, and an internet uplink. This means you're responsible for your own server software, data storage, backup procedures, etc. If hardware fails, you're responsible for replacing it and getting the server back up and running.

    Unless you have the technical know-how in-house, Colocation is probably not worth the investment in time, expertise, and money for most small businesses.
